Director of Hotel & Hospitality Operations

“World Equestrian Center’s dynamic environment caters to a wide range of clientele. In a single day, we might greet world-class equestrian exhibitors, owners, and support staff; local Floridians, global tourists and equine enthusiasts; meeting and event planners and patrons; and luxury hotel guests escaping for a spa weekend to the heart of America’s horse country. With so many different experiences to shape, our approach to hospitality is centered around meeting the individualized needs of each unique guest. To accomplish this, we embrace true Southern hospitality with a warm and welcoming approach, and never hesitate to go the extra mile to make a moment momentous. Whether it’s serving up ice-cold poolside cocktails at Horse To Water Pool & Bar, offering a busy rider a fast and flavorful lunch at Filo’s Mexican Cantina or a decadent pastry from Emma’s Patisserie on-the-go between classes, or making a guest’s celebration extra special at the five-star Stirrups Restaurant, our team excels at creating truly memorable experiences with quality, class and distinction.”
